Dishoom - Instant Movie Review #35

Rohit Dhawan's - "Dishoom"

Positives:
1) Action and Comedic Sequences

Negatives: 
1) Characters
2) Music

Introduction: Established as a comedic action thriller, Dishoom is a fictional story about an Indian cricket player being kidnapped in the Middle East few days before a tournament decider between India and Pakistan. Infuriated with the situation, Indian Government dispatches a high-profile police officer Kabir Shergill (John Abraham) for investigation and is later accompanied by a jovial yet steadfast officer Junaid (Varun Dhawan) who later becomes a seamless ally for Kabir and plays a major role in the inquiry. 

Analysis: Walking into the movie theatre, I completely comprehended what I'm about to get from this film, a mind-numbing entertainer with few bits and pieces of action and comedy. And the movie delighted me on that level of entertainment and amusement. But, examining a little further into the plot and screenplay they're several errors and plot holes that are easily discoverable throughout the film. Then again, as I pointed out earlier, I didn't expect this film to be sharp and astute, I anticipated it to be witty and exciting and that's exactly what I obtained.

Characters and Performances: John Abraham plays the role of a stern no-nonsense cop which didn't need an utter amount of acting skills, he received an adaptable role and delivered a pleasant performance on a whole. Exhibiting his bona fide fun persona, Varun Dhawan's performance was the most enjoyable out of the bunch, his flawless delivery together with his alluring charisma tailored effortlessly with the film and was an absolute delight to watch. 

Jacqueline Fernandez had nothing much to do apart from few crucial moments in the film. Her character was weakly written additionally with few major characters which I don't want to disclose. 

Verdict: Nevertheless, Dishoom is a definite guarantee for some mind-numbing entertainment where you can sit back, relish and appreciate what the movie is trying to offer you. Worth checking out!

My Rating - 3/5
Grade - B (Worth a watch!)
